Brave Merida Cosplay

Merida-Cosplay

Pixar’s Brave made a splash with the memorable Merida. Like or dislike the film, you probably noticed and remembered Merida’s wild red hair and her stubborn attitude. Cosplayer Lauren, a.k.a. Aretsaya, channeled some of Merida’s traits for her cosplay. She made every aspect of the costume from the wig to the bow. As you can imagine, crafting a Merida-worthy wig is quite the undertaking — so much of the outfit is about the hair. Lauren explained her process on Reddit:

I made the wig from the following
Base orange lace front from WigIsFashion 2 x cheaper long wigs from ebay in a darker orange and muted red 6 x weft packs (100 inches each) from Coscraft in a few different oranges/reds
I removed all the wefts from the two other wigs and cut all the remaining hair into 2-3 inch sections, folded in half and secured and then curled. I did this with the extra wefts too.
I then had a massive bag of extra curls and hand sewed each one into the base wig with the darker colours underneath… In total it was probably an extra 800 odd inches of hair sewn into the base wig.
I then added extra wig clips to hold it and that and the lace glue and it didn’t budge all day
